My Home My Land

My land was taken from me
I felt sad
confused
I love my home
Memories
Feelings
Everything changing
My heart is beating faster now
The birds behind me taking flight
But
Something doesn’t feel right
I’m sad inside
So much
It hurts
I hear the drums coming
closer
My friends are coming
to help me
We sing together
The trees blow in the wind
Tousilum
I respect you
Everything is changing
Nothing is the same
